  • All About Literacy

    Recently, students in preschool through the second grade listened to author Deborah Freedman talk about how she writes and illustrates her books. Mrs. Freedman described herself as an "idea collector". She told the students that she always has a notebook with her to record interesting ideas and observations which might make their way into a book. She described how she looks for "nice, juicy words". The students were intrigued and didn't even blink when Freedman told them that it often takes her a full year to complete a book.

    Author Gail Gauthier also spoke to students in grades three through eight about the writing strategies and techniques she uses in her writing. Once again, the students heard that writing takes practice and time, and the seeds for the best writing come from one's own life.

    Both writers conveyed to the students that good writers read a lot, and we learn to be a good writer by reading good writing.

    Students in kindergarten through the second grade dressed as their favorite literary characters. We had Amelia Bedelia, Fancy Nancy, Biscuit, Geronimo Stilton, Flat Stanley, and many other well known characters walking the hallways.
